Oldham Athletic are considering making a move to sign Giles Coke according to a report from journalist Alan Nixon.

Coke has played all across the country having been contracted to the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Mansfield Town and Northampton Town. Most recently he had a short spell with Chesterfield, signing for them in February 2018 a few months after he was released from Ipswich Town. However he was unable to stop the Spireites from being relegated from the EFL and he was released shortly after that.

But now he could get a new club with Oldham being interested in signing him. The Latics are having to rebuild their squad following their relegation from Sky Bet League One and are needing some quality players so they can return to that division as soon as possible. While Coke didn’t have the best spell with Chesterfield, he has performed very well in this league before and could end up being a key player for them should they decide to move in for him.

While Coke has done well across the EFL, his most notable incident was while he was on loan with Oldham’s Greater Manchester rivals Bury. After a penalty was given to Bury, he would have an argument with club captain Steven Schumacher about who would take the spot kick with it getting heated enough for both players to get booked. While Schumacher would eventually win the argument and score the penalty, it did hit national headlines and Coke would apologise for his actions.
